The Chance

Robyn Carr. Mira, $7.99 mass market (352p) ISBN 978-0-7783-1599-5
Carr’s fourth contemporary set in Thunder Point, Ore. (after The Hero), is enjoyable and heartfelt. FBI agent Laine Carrington nearly died during a deep undercover stint at an Oregon cult commune. She returns to the area to reclaim part of the life she nearly lost—and to escape the East Coast, where her hypercritical father criticizes her every move. Auto body shop owner Eric Gentry is also a recent addition to the tiny beachside town of Thunder Point. His baggage includes a stint in prison and a daughter he didn’t know he had until recently, but the fed and the felon immediately form a close bond. Then Laine’s father drops shocking news into the middle of the relationship, leaving the lovers floundering. As usual, Carr delves into the lives of others in town, laying the groundwork for future books. This cozy read satisfies. (Mar.)
